Cheetah love

A copple of cheetahs in heat. During the time I was searching for this photograph, I was really amazed by the bridal behavior of these cheetahs, very "human" so to speak. It looked like a couple really in love the way that humans do. For a long time they were pampering and smacking each other, moving along a large plain area until finally they hid themselves behind some bushes, far away. I decided not to bother them, and I just take a picture from the distance using the maximum focal I had available. In addition, the bushes and green tones suggested a beautiful vertical composition for this couple in love.
